Illustration catch-up

Morning everyone! You'll be pleased to hear I'm nearly up to date with my news! 

Here are some of my newer illustrations that you may or may not have seen yet. I feel like my style is refining itself lately... I'm experimenting with different ways of working, trying to 'paint' more naturally while working digitally, and generally focusing on working in a way that I really want to, rather than trying to second-guess what potential clients will want from me. I'm always hearing this from other artists... that it's important to do work that you enjoy, to create work that you want to be hired to do, to draw and paint in a way that makes you happy, so that in those ways your work will grow more and other people will be able to see your enjoyment shine through. I think that it is working, as I feel like I'm really developing a specific style and quality that is coming out in all of my recent finished illustrations. What do you think of my new working direction? I don't know how discernible the change is to others, whether my new work looks different to my older illustrations to an outsiders eyes or not, so I'd love to hear your feedback. And do let me know if you have any other thoughts or tips relating to style etc and how you like to work!

  1. Your new work is gorgeous, really light and playful- I love it! I understand what you mean about style developing and growing, it's a battle I get caught in quite a lot (what I want to do and what I think others expect from me) Yvonne x
